Most shaft gaiters are available in a two part kit. The two halves are placed around the shaft and then glued together. I was astounded when my garage replaced a split gaiter in about ten minutes, after I had spend days trying to find a special tool to stretch the gaiter over the end of the shaft !!

In order to replace a Renault Megane Scenic drive shaft gaiter, a boot kit can be purchased. This kit not only includes all needed parts including the required lubrication but also a step by step guide to replace the boot. Installation includes splitting the drive shaft and repacking the bearings so proceed with caution.

A drive shaft allows torque to enter a motor. Louis Renault of France was the inventor of the drive shaft. He invented the drive shaft in 1898.

Tape over the splines on the inner end of the driveshaft, then carefully slide the outer gaiter onto the shaft. pack the joints with the grease supplied in the repair kit. Ease the gaiter over the joint and ensure that the gaiter lips are correctly located in the grooves of the driveshaft and on the joint. With the coupling aligned with driveshaft, lift the lip of the gaiter to equalise air pressure. Fit the large metal retianing clip to the gaiter, remove any slack in the gaiter retaining clip by carefully compressing the raised section of the clip. check that the constant velocity joint moves freely in all directions before proceeding any further To refit the vibration damper when applicable lubricate the driveshaft with a solution of soapy water press or drive the vibration damper along the shaft using a tubular spacer which bears only on the damper inner bush until aligned with the mark made prior to removal. Refit the inner constant velocity joint then refit the driveshaft to the vehicle hope my info helps cheers Gary Australia
